37 Street Stormwater Trunk Project

About the project

To prepare for construction of the South West Calgary Ring Road project, Alberta Transportation requested that the City of Calgary relocate an existing storm trunk that crosses Tsuut’ina First Nation lands. Phase 1, which saw installation of a storm trunk along 37th Street, is now complete. Phase 2 of the project will continue installation of the new storm trunk through North Glenmore Park to an outfall near the Blue Heron picnic area.

Construction Impacts

For the safety of park users a large section of North Glenmore Park will be closed during construction, including both the park area and street access via 37 Street.

Some of the construction impacts include:

  • No vehicle access to the park via the 37 Street S.W. entrance
  • A large area on the west side of North Glenmore Park will be closed during construction
  • Pathways may be closed for short periods of time during construction
  • Construction noise from heavy equipment
  • Increased truck traffic from hauling excavated material
  • Work hours will be 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Sunday

Park Improvements

Through this project more parking stalls will be added to the park, and the project team is exploring the possibility of improved year-round bathroom facilities and improvements to the Blue Heron picnic area. More details will be shared on those improvements as they become available.

An oil grit separator will be installed to treat storm water before it enters the Glenmore Reservoir. The quality of Calgary’s drinking water is very important, and we will make sure the storm water entering the reservoir from this outfall is treated.

Further water quality treatment options will be investigated, details will be shared as they become available.
